Meet the boys
Well like most kids they are rowdy, funny, silly, sometimes stinky haha, and always ready for some good ole joking on mom. Luke is a typical teenager, he is driving now which is very scary, starting his senior year in August( i am not old enough for this part), and has a very full social calender. William is our almost tweenager, he loves video games and has the most sweetest dispostion of any kid I have ever known. The glass is always half full not half empty in his eyes. Then Grayson is our 2 yr old, (don't think I could've spaced them out any further lol). Grayson has been through more in his 2 years of life than most adults. He was diagnosed at about a week old with Sotos Syndrome. This very rare syndrome has brought a whole new way of life for our family. He has a trach, a feeding tube(aka gtube) and sleeps on oxygen at night. Our boys have learned the true meaning of unconditional love. We are truly a family that has overcome some major obstacles. Grayson spent about 10 weeks in the NICU, then had several lengthy hospital stays after that, and meanwhile Luke and Willam remained supportive, generally happy and very understanding that we had to take care of Grayson and they got pushed to the backburner. Now that we are not staying in the hospital all the time(praise God) they have learned to laugh through the stressful time, and make me crazy and keep me sane all at the same time. God is so good. He purposfully picked my boys for me and WOW I am blessed.
